German Smoker | How To
The German smoker is a fun alternative to the usual incense burner. A traditional Christmas project, these delightful wooden figurines can be made in all kinds of characters for all year round use.

They originate from the Ore Mountain region of Erzgebirge in Germany and are great fun; with many different variations of characters to make you will be spoilt for choice!
